" in an inaugural address, and i think that is where the country is heading. he laid down a marker for this when he talked abut equality. >> mark? >> establishing my grading system at the outset, i give a's second,ln, roosevelt's and kennedy paused only. i would give obama a b, a bb- plus. he was far more surefooted than had been in the past. since the member 6 he has shown a far clearer sense of what he wants to do. i think this was a communitarian address, a lot more than the individualism and we have heard in recent past. >> charles? >> i will buck the tide of grade inflation that has infected the panel. if you are a liberal, this was an a plus, a declaration of a liberal future. declaration that 30 years of conservative ascendancy that began with a ragged's inaugural where he stated in a minute and a half, government is not the solution, but is the problem, this was an overturning of that. this is a way of saying we are in a new era which he will initiate. from that perspective, i give him credit for honesty, open this, boldness about who he is and what he wants to do. i was just amazed that so
, but once again, i think this comes down to president obama's policy. remember, she's the secretary of state. she implements the president's agenda, and i think a lot of the problems out there, i think, were president obama's vision. i think i may be wrong here, but i think secretary clinton would have done things a little different on some of these situations such as iran. in fact, i think she's more to the right on iran than president obama is. >> interesting point of view. this has been very much how he sees things, anne marie. a question, though, for you, about her popularity. that to me is what seems to be the most amazing thing. how has she achieved that to be so popular? i ask you that because you know her and you worked for her. early on in her campaign, people saw her at shrill and over the top, and now she's the beloved lady. >> i think that people see what she said in the campaign is that she gets up every single morning and figures out how she can work her absolute hardest to advance the american people and frankly people all over to the world. people have seen it day in, day out
of state? president obama thinks the first option is what people think. >> i think hillary will go down as one of the finest secretary of states we've had. >> not everyone agrees. a former official tells the los angeles times, it's tough to see what has happened in world politics over the last four years that wouldn't have happened without her, so it's hard to see how she gets into the category of truly great, transformational secretaries. and i want to note in the article of the los angeles times, all of them were crical spoke as unnamed former officials, but people who were complimentary were willing to go by name. peter brooks, assistant secretary of defense in the bush administration, anne marie slaughter worked for secretary clinton. great to have both of you. peter, what do you think? we saw this article today in the "los angeles times." i have not seen many articles questioning at all the tenure of secretary clinton. this was the first. >> i'm not a diplomatic historian, but i think some of the fawning has been over the top. we saw this at her hearing over benghazi. we saw this,
. well, the last time that barack obama and hillary clinton sat down together to answer questions it was in a debate in the middle of a fight for the democratic presidential nomination. they were at each other's throats. well, today just days away from the end of her term as secretary of state, they sat down again together to answer questions. this time from steve kroft of "60 minutes." the joint interview, apparently, was the president's idea. >> reporter: why did you want to do this together? a joint interview. >> well, the main thing is i just wanted to have a chance to publicly say that you can because i think hillary will go down as one of the finest secretary of states we've had. it has been a great collaboration over the last four years. i'm going to miss her. i wish she was sticking around but she has logged in so many miles i can't begrudge her to want to take it easy for a little bit. but i want the country to appreciate just what an extraordinary role she's played during the course of my administration and a lot of the successes we've had internationally because of her
president obama will double down on proposals that he's supported since taking office with the hope that this time the appetite on the hill is a little more hungry for change. >> what has been absent in the time he's put those principles forward has been the willingness by republicans to move forward with comprehensive immigration reform and what he hopes is that dynamic has changed. >> joining me now from the white house, white house correspondent, kristin welker, the president expected to give us the contours of a plan tuesday in las vegas. at this point do we have any idea what it will look like? >> craig, good afternoon. i think you will hear president obama unveil his vision for comprehensive immigration reform and i don't think it will be widely different from what he's talked about. in the past, remember, this is something he's been talking about since 2008 when he first ran for president. now it looks like he may have more support after they lost the latino vote so largely during the 2012 race so in terms of what it may look like, some of what he's talked about before includ
this extraordinary interview, the joint under view, the first time it's happened with president obama and hillary clinton sitting down talking to "60 minutes." it airs tonight. i wonder is there talk in washington this isn't in some ways president obama picking favorites in the race to replace him in 2016 because joe biden is also talking about maybe running. >> reporter: that's right and, you know, joe biden isn't sitting right next to the president in that interview. i don't think president obama has ever done an interview sitting next to anybody but his wife. so you bet there's a lot of talk about that and we'll talk to our powerhouse roundtable about that. >> you heard hillary clinton say that this is a surprise, who would have thought four years ago they would be sitting together and being so close. very interesting. >>> also this week hearings, confirmation hearings for the president's defense choice, defense secretary choice, chuck hagel begin. at times this seemed to vary. what are the odds this is actually going to go through? >> reporter: i think the chances are very good it'll go throu
way, we're going to have growth. the unemployment rate should come down. and president obama is exactly right. focusing on the people at the lower end here. you fix and help the people at the lower end by getting the economy going again. you're exactly right. and the psychologically for the democrats and republicans, it's so important that there be some consensus. you get paul ryan here with his charts, and it looks like the world is going to end at some point. and you need to get everyone onboard to the idea, no, the world is not going to end. >> andrea, i was on capitol hill this weekend. you get a sense that a lot of the gun legislation is not going to be successful. immigration reform is moving at pace. they are having very constructive conversations, republicans and democrats together. the entitlement piece is going to be hard, whether the president wants to go very far on medicare. he has liberals saying don't do it, don't raise the retirement age. so how do these pieces come together here in the next three, four, five months? >> that is exactly the question. when he ev

. >> we just learned a federal appeals court has struck down president obama recess appointme appointments. deb labor secretary sharon block, union lawyer richard griffin and attorney terrence flynn. today a three-judge federal panel said those appointments are invalid because the senate was only in recess and technically in session. the ruling could invalidate hundreds of decisions the labor board maybe over the last year. i want to bring in paul to talk about what does this mean? first of all, for the three that were appointed and then secondly for some of the decisions that they have made. >> this is a very important decision. this court called the d.c. circuit which has jurisdiction over all federal agencies is often a thorn in the side of the president. it's also a prestigious federal court. many supreme justices come from the court. it's got a lot of prestige and power. their decision really is a surprise decision here. what they did was they looked at the constitution and they said the founding fathers defined recess in a certain way and during a recess of the congress, the presiden

. >> woodruff: one week into his second term, president obama officially took on the issue of immigration today. he said it comes down to a simple question: whether the country and the government have the resolve, finally, to deal with the long-festering national challenge. the president launched his effort in nevada where more than a quarter of the state's residents are hispanic. >> i'm here today because the time has come for common sense, comprehends i have been immigration reform. ( cheers and applause ) the time is now. >> woodruff: the campaign-style event at a las vegas high school came a day after a bipartisan group of eight u.s. senators put forward their own plan. it calls for creating a path to legal citizenship for the 11 million undocumented people now estimated to be living in the u.s implementing that policy would be contingent on securing the southern border. seven years ago then senator obama the joined a similar effort >> if the compromise that's been discussed and has the agreement of those who were in this room, if that ends up being the bill that is signed into law, it's a
obama and secretary clinton will be sitting down with steve kroft from "60 minutes." this is interesting, because it will be their first joint interview. it will air, of course, on sunday. of course, you can expect the two of them to get a range of questions, particularly about benghazi. and we also expect there to be some reflection about secretary clinton's tenure as secretary of state. of course, she's the most traveled secretary of state. so a lot to talk about during that interview. >> and, obviously, president obama, the first thing he did after being inaugurated was push forward the nominations for treasury and state. and obviously, john kerry had his first appearance before a senate panel yesterday, getting some tough questions about benghazi as hillary clinton did this week as well. >> reporter: he was, luke. and by all accounts, senator kerry's nomination is really expected to sail through. everyone expects him to be confirmed. but what happened yesterday is that he got some tough questions about secretary clinton's testimony a day earlier on benghazi. what the administration k

that doesn't put border security first. let's go to carl cameron in washington. how do you break this down? is there a big difference from what you heard from president obama, compared to the bipartisan commission of eight senators yesterday? we heard a lot more from the so-called gang of eight. they got more granular. what we heard from the president was a campaign rally. he is going to head out on the campaign trail and push his agenda items with campaign-style peaches of that nature. you could hear the crowd getting wooped up with campaign-style rhetoric to advance this. it's generalities and we haven't seen the details. what is noting is that the president has changed his language. in the past when he has been talking about comprehensive immigration reform, he has talked about the desire as an end game to get those here now illegally, quote, legal status. now he is saying this is a path not to legal status, but a path to citizenship. that's much more aggressive. the time table he is likely to propose is a slightly faster path to citizensship than what the commission has put forward. ha
by a margin of 700,000. in this elicateerate right now, president obama won with 10 promise of the electorate. we are seeing a changing of the american electorate and have to do a better job as republicans of reaching out. it really comes down to this fundamental idea, this principle-- are we going to talk about what we're for or are we going to talk about what we're against geaness? we lulled ourselves into a belief that in the 2010 elections, because we had very good results in the midterms, that we could be a party of no and run against spending, run against deficits. but in order to prosper and become a majority party we have to talk about what we're for. immigration is an example. what does a modernizedly immigration system look like and how is it part a larger economic argument, part of the argument of values and families? that is our challenge as part of the rebuilding process going forward. >> schieffer: let's talk a little bit-- i want to talk to you about this overseas, problems that may be coming up. clearly, dianne feinstein says, hey, the war on terror is is not over. it's still
. we're keeping them honest. they weren't such good pals. hillary clinton, president obama cap off a run as secretary of state on a sit-down interview on "60 minutes." >>> he was an inspiration to photo journalists around the world. tim heathering ton died doing what he does best, what happened in the midst of world. libya, 40 years old, he was a friend to this program. i'll speak to his close friend and colleague sebastian younger who put together an amazing documentary celebrating his life. that and more at the top of the hour. >>> our fifth story "outfront," changing the rules of the game. republicans in a number of states that president obama won in november want to change the way electoral votes in their states are distributed. currently all states except nebraska and maine award all electoral votes to one candidate. states like virginia, michigan, pennsylvania, and ohio are looking to award electoral vote busy congressional district. and that would give the gop a huge advantage in some crucial swing states. john king is "outfront" with all these changes could have affected th
the can down the road. is this proverbial constant delay, delay, delay until they can get anything together? >> i don't blame president obama for all of this. i do think he inherit the a very polarized nation. richard nixon and ronald reagan won re-election with 48 and 49 states. obama squeaked out a victory here. one thing obama has to do, even if it's not his fault, he has to lead the country. the nation is in an interesting position, where the right has turned very right and the red has turned very red and the blue is very blue. but on issues like immigration and the budget, i think there is a chance to move forward and i think the democrats on the hill will urge the president to work in a more bipartisan fashion, because if you look at the senate races in 2014, there is a lot of democratic senator who is have to get re-elected in swing or red states. so i think political reality is this -- they have to come together to get some things done or both sides will fail and be criticized. >> eric: specifically, how does he find his way out of this one? speaker baner says he -- speaker
